Boardwalk Bites & Brews

Saturday, September 29, 2018, 5:30 PM - 1:00 AM

Our newest food festival celebrates everyone's favorite amusement park foods paired with Santa Cruz County's best craft beers!

Local brewers have been challenged to select (or brew up) a beer that best complements a Boardwalk menu item. With foods ranging from corn dogs and garlic fries to crepes and chocolate-covered bacon, the intriguing combinations offer a little something for everyone.

Meet local brewers, taste great food and sample an impressive list of more than two dozen local craft beers.
